Guest Announcement: Uncle YO

We are excited to announce our first Guest of Honor, Uncle YO!

Karl “Uncle Yo” Custer is New York’s premiere geek-specific comedian, having appeared at over 100 anime, comic book and video game conventions. His self-proclaimed style of “rantcore” combines long-form stories with motivational rhyming couplets. Panel leader, emcee, Off-Broadway playwright, puppeteer and podcaster, Yo show-runs his original Youtube’s fantasy sitcom with puppets, Dungeon Crawlers. You can listen to his latest project on Youtube, a bi-weekly narrative horror podcast called Chroniclers of Darkness.

His entire 4-CD collection is available through Amazon, iTunes, and streaming on Spotify. He’ll also have DVD’s on him exclusively for No Brand Con. Alternatively, you can spot him in several cameos alongside Channel Awesome, where he was featured alongside the Nostalgia Critic, Demo Reel, and the channel’s 5th anniversary feature, DragonBored. For older kids, you can see him as corporate, flower-loving super-villain Jeff Regan on Youtube’s suburban super-hero series, Schnoz-Man and HolePunch: the Justice Lease.

Guest Announcement: Dan and Jillian!

An attendee favorite, Dan and Jillian and their Akitas return to No Brand Con 2016!

Dan Coglan, a.k.a. “Samurai Dan” and his wife, Jillian are the acknowledged masters of marital… er, MARTIAL mayhem. This dynamic duo travels the civilized portions of the U.S., bringing their unique show to curious and horrified audiences alike.

In addition to their high-energy, mostly safe stage shows (where razor sharp blades and barbs fly) the couple teaches historical and hysterical panels on the way of the warrior. Offering a wide range of lectures and interactive workshops, Dan and his lethal love Jillian are guaranteed to provide con attendees fun and fulfillment.

Due to a supreme lack of filter, Dan also performs standup comedy, and lives to embarrass his wife onstage, in censored and uncensored settings.

A storyteller at heart, Dan is finishing his third horror novel, and offers insights into the creative process with panels for the aspiring writer as well.
